2015 Artisan Awards

AUSTIN, Texas (December 30, 2015) – Adelbert’s Brewery in Austin, Texas is excited to announce it has received two Gold Medals from the 2015 Artisan Awards for Flyin’ Monks and Dancin’ Monks. With the addition of these two medals, Adelbert’s Brewery now holds 27 medals to date.

The Artisan Awards is a competition that showcases traditional made products from producers around the world. The Artisan Awards beer category is growing in both sales and popularity year after year. They aim to highlight where the products were sourced, much like a farmers market, by showcasing traditional, organic, handmade, local, small batch, and seasonal beer brands.

Flyin’ Monks, a quadrupel, is conditioned on oak cubes used by Spirit of Texas Distillery to age their Pecan Street Rum. This ale has complex sweet oak and rum flavors with a warm alcoholic finish. It also holds a Gold Medal from the International Craft Competition Awards and Regional Championship from the United States Beer Tasting Championship (USBTC).

Dancin’ Monks, a dubbel, is a clean, malty ale with fruity, plum aromas and robust flavors. The carbonation balances the moderate sweetness from the malt, resulting in a dry and smooth finish. It also has a Gold Medal from the Craft Beer Awards.

Prior to the Artisan Awards, Adelbert’s Brewery brought home another seven awards in 2015 including:
– Great American Beer Festival (GABF) Gold Medal in Belgian and French Style Ale for Vintage Monks
– International Craft Competition Awards Gold Medal for Flyin’ Monks
– Belgian White-Wit National Grand Champion from the United States Beer Tasting Championship (USBTC) for Naked Nun
– Silver Medal at the Best Of Craft Beer Awards for Naked Nun
– Bronze Medal from Best Little Brewfest in Texas for Tripel B
– Gold Medal from Best Little Brewfest in Texas for Scratchin’ Hippo
– International Craft Competition Awards Gold Medal for Vintage Nun

Barrel of Love 2015

AUSTIN, Texas (December , 2015)– Adelbert’s Brewery will release Barrel of Love, a whiskey barrel aged quadrupel, in January 2016. The beer is part of Adelbert’s Vintage Series and will be a seasonal release for Valentine’s Day. Barrel of Love will be released in kegs and bottles that will start selling to the market January 1, 2016.

Barrel of Love 2015 is an 11 percent quadrupel aged in Treaty Oak Distillery’s whiskey barrels. Brewed with dark Belgian candy syrup and Trappist yeast, the quad offers complex fruity notes of figs, raisins and plums. This Belgian style ale pairs well with aged Gouda, roasted duck, pork, bread pudding, and is perfect for a Valentine’s Day dinner.

Scott Hovey, brew master and founder of Adelbert’s Brewery, fell in love with bourbon chocolate stouts and decided to make some of his own.

“We’ve released Barrel of Love in the past, but this year’s is a different, special release for Valentine’s Day,” Hovey said. “Each year the style of Barrel of Love will shift, but it will always be aged in a barrel.”
